I'm looking to get into doing tech support for a school district or community college, but all of the ones I've seen so far insist on MacOS proficiency or want it strongly enough that it's a serious competitive advantage over other applicants without it. So I need to pick up something that can run the latest version of MacOS.
However, I also know that Apple tech tends to be expensive. What's my best option for snagging an Apple device I can acquire proficiency on without spending a fortune?
I don't care if it's portable or not, I just have no idea what models to look for or how much to budget.
